CONCEPT FOR EMERGENCY UNIT CHRISTCHURCH 2010-11


The emergency unit designed following the September 2010 earthquake in Christchurch is an adaption of the Port-a-Bach to fit 6 people for a period of 2 years. Based on a 40ft shipping container, the same principles of unfolding a face of a fully fitted container applies (see prototype 20Ft Port-a-bach). This Emergency unit contains 2 bunks and a double bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom, a separate laundry/storage and an open plan living area.
